The Instant Pot® craze doesn’t seem to be waning, and even though Instant Pots® save time, The "I Love My Instant Pot®" 5-Ingredient Recipe Book: From Pot Roast, Potatoes, and Gravy to Simple Lemon Cheesecake, 175 Quick and Easy Recipes makes cooking in your Instant Pot® even faster and easier. It is generally a no-brainer to assemble five ingredients for dinner, so this excellent cookbook will help you save even more time, as well as give you great recipe ideas.
This cookbook includes recipes for appetizers, breakfasts, meats, poultry, seafood, salads, soups, and even desserts. Most of the recipes are quick to put together, and most are fairly quick to cook. One of the things Fagone emphasizes is that dry beans don’t have to be soaked overnight, and the recipes using them in the Instant Pot take a bit more time to cook. However, as is usual, the cooking process doesn’t need to be monitored, so busy cooks can go about their business while their dishes are cooking. There are several dishes in the book including dry beans and other things that need long cooking like grits; they come out perfectly in the Instant Pot®.
While the main cooking is done in the Instant Pot® for many of the dishes, the final prep is done in the oven, broiler, or other means, and in some salads, the refrigerator. There are all-purpose recipes that will appeal to everyone, and so far every recipe I’ve tried has turned out well. The only drawback to this cookbook is the sad lack of photographs. While there are a few, and they are nice, there aren’t as many as there should be. In this modern day, photographs are easy to publish, and they should be included in all cookbooks.
All told, this is an excellent Instant Pot® cookbook, and everyone who likes to use their Instant Pot® and also save time will appreciate the recipes. This is a good one.
